Tape Deck Sonata


Seeing as how they're shameless Brit-rock geeks, Tape Deck Sonata aren't about to discover the old weird America anytime soon. They're having too much fun with the old weird punks, the older, weirder mods, and hoary '80s St. Louis radio rock — which means they sound as much like the Cars as they do the Buzzcocks or the Stone Roses. Formed in 2003 by guitarist Kevin Clipper and vocalist/ songwriter Nick Baker, the band has been leisurely about its releases: The five-song EP, Side A, appeared in 2005 — and that's it. Their twitchy, fuzzy and just shy-of-stoned guitar pop may still be in gestation, but they have the hooks and patience to grow into their influences.
